"Exceptional, stimulating, and enlightening. . . . Joining efforts with other prominent Jewish and Christian scholars, the editors have provided a book that offers an entrée to the biblical text for the uninitiated, new insights into familiar texts for the initiated, a treasure trove of sermonic possibilities for the homilist, and profound insight into the common roots and historically divergent branches of Jewish and Christian biblical hermeneutics."
John T. Pawlikowski, O. S. M.
Catholic Theological Union
"This new volume by two leading figures in the Jewish-Christian dialogue is just what the doctor ordered. . . . These Jewish and Christian scholars and pastoral leaders provide us with excellent examples of how to communicate the new vision of Jewish-Christian understanding through the biblical word. Preaching Biblical Texts meets a long-standing need in a masterful way."
Pastor, Community Covenant Church, Minneapolis
"This book offers us the occasion to celebrate both the continuity and the different nuances seen in texts by Jewish and Christian scholars. The contributors reflect a deep respect for the biblical text as well as its ongoing relevance to contemporary life. They have made the challenge of preaching simpler and more provocative."
Rabbi Alexander M. Schindler
President, Union of American Hebrew Congregations
"An important book. . . . The editors have included an impressive roster of scholars in this volume, and it is my fond hope that it will receive a warm reception in clerical circles."
